lyrics

Text & English Translation

Nisi Dominus aedificaverit domum:
in vanum laboraverunt qui aedificant eam.
Nisi Dominus custodierit civitatem:
frustra vigilat qui custodit eam.
Vanum est vobis ante lucem surgere:
surgite postquam sederitis
qui manducatis panem doloris.
Cum dederit dilectis suis somnum:
ecce haereditas Domini, filii:
merces, fructus ventris.
Sicut sagittae in manu potentis:
ita filii excussorum.
Beatus vir qui implevit desiderium suum ex ipsis:
non confundetur cum loquetur
inimicis suis in porta.
Gloria Patri et Filio :
et Spiritui Sancto.
Sicut erat in principio et nunc et semper:
et in secula seculorum. Amen.


Unless the Lord build the house:
they labor in vain that build it.
Unless the Lord keep the city:
he watcheth in vain that keepeth it.
It is vain for you to rise before dawn:
rise after you have rested,
you who eat the bread of sorrow.
When He shall give sleep to His beloved:
behold the inheritance of the Lord are children:
the reward, the fruit of the womb.
As arrows in the hand of the mighty:
so are the children of them that have been
shaken.
Blessed is the man that hath filled the desire with
them:
he shall not be confounded when he shall speak
to his enemies in the gate.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son :
and to the Holy Spirit.
As it was in the beginning, now, and for ever:
world without end. Amen.
